I haven't been able to find bibb lettuce.....would butter lettuce be an acceptable substitute? Any other ideas?

      Yeah - but don't worry too much about the lettuce variety if you're sticking to usual supermarket varieties (red leaf, green leaf, romaine, bibb, butter, etc.). They are all pretty interchangeable. It's only when you start getting into arugula or dandelion greens or maybe even spinach that you run into significant taste variations.
